I joined TGH because I needed help. I figured out that I too was a trans woman, and I had no idea where to look for help. I started off over at CDH because I lurked around there for a while before joining way back when I started doing that. Little did I know that was my key to discovering my true self. That group was supportive, still is. I noticed that there was info on this site, so I created an account.
one thing I love here is the info on the side menu. Everything I could think to ask is right there. If Anything not there, I can post and get answers from people who have lived it. That’s really worth so much.
also, I’m making friends, and we are sharing experiences which is something special. I don’t make friends easily, I have wondered if it’s my whole gender issue, and it might be… but here are those who understand that, and so far I’ve been very much feeling welcomed.
